. >> now state and defense department officials and actor and activist ben affleck testified at a hearing on violence in eastern congo where a rebel group has terrorized people. the m-23 rebels are defectors from the army and were recently able to overtake the city of goma despite a large u.n. security presence there. the house armed services committee hosts this hearing. this is three hours. i can't help but reflect on the millions of innocent people around the world who are caught in fundamentally unjust and socially complex situations. these situations can make anyone's heart break and naturally leads one to consider the simple question what can be done. one thing it sure makes me appreciate our country. i have heard that less than 2% of the people that have ever lived here on the earth have lived under the kind of freedoms that we enjoy. we are so blessed. and when we see how innocent lives are -- how people are hurt so much by some of the thing that is are happening around the world, it just again really makes me appreciate home. the question and likewise the answer becomes more comp

the syrian government is now on the defensive. they are trying to defend itself, trying to find some sort of appeal to stay in power. you hear this time and time again -- they have so much confidence. we have been to syria so many times and they believe even with light weapons, we have seen territorial gains on the ground. they have been able to take territory. but you cannot call it liberated territory simply because everywhere remains a target. syrian fighter jet, artillery. at the end of the day, there are civilians, civilians caught in the crossfire. and anger is growing. people are worried about how will they find bread, fuel. life is becoming increasingly difficult for the people inside. winter, people are called. refugees in neighboring countries. some people are returning simply because life in exile to them is a slow death. they would rather cheat death inside. so, a very gloomy picture. the international community extremely worried about the post-assad days, talking about the possibility of even more chaos. >> thank you very much, indeed. an afghan policeman killed a u.s. contra
reports, the president's most recent ask was for 1.2 trillion in revenue, additional savings in defense a hundred billion, that's a come bind total net savings of roughly 3.4 trillion dollars. that's close to what the economist have called for in a package. let me be quick to say what we don't know is how is the alternative minimum tax being treated because that cost about $800 billion to fix. we don't know how the other tax extenders are being treated because that cost another $800 if we're going to extend those provisions. we don't know how the dock fix is being handled because those doctors are going to take a cut of 28% if nothing is done. that cost ability $240 billion over ten years to fix. if all of those things were done an offset that would dramatically reduce the savings of this package. but we don't know. i've heard and read press reports saying that overseas contingency operations, so called war cost are being used as an offset to the minimum tax or perhaps the doc fix and that i've read may amount to as much as $800 billion. so i don't think we have sufficient information t
to replace secretary of defense leon panetta. joining me now to look at all this: james mann, long-time journalist and author of "the obamians: the struggle inside the white house to redefine american power"; and david ignatius, foreign affairs columnist for the "washington post." david, as we heard the president say, a well-known man around washington and foreign policy circles. what strengths does john kerry bring? >> well, the first is the one the president mentioned. he has stature, he's well-known. he's being doing foreign policy from the senate for almost three decades. he's a person well-known to leaders around the world. the second thing that people don't know as much about is that he served as an emissary for president obama in some very delicate situations. the president sent him to afghanistan to try to make a better relationship with president karzai there. kerry is widely believed to have been a success in that. he was sent to pakistan for similar mission to deal with president zardari. it's less well-known that he conveyed a message, written message to hamas to try to

as republicans want but clearly they have moved on that. and i also think there will be substantial defense cuts, if we want to make a dent in the deficit. i mean this is the choice that is going to be in front of us. if, we have to do four things if we want to reduce the deficit. we have to get more revenue, we have to cut domestic spending, we have to trim and reform the health care programs in particular of medicare and medicaid and we have to cut defense. if we do all four of those things we can make significant down payment getting deficit under control. if we do some of them, the numbers are not there enough to make as much progress as we want. this is where mark and i agree. over next six to nine months we could see substantial progress towards smart fiscal policy in the country if the two parties come together. heather: we'll see what happens. thank you both very much for joining us until monday night. thank you. >> merry christmas. happy new year.

mouth shut because i think truth is a defense and it's unfortunate if in fact the case he has been punished either by the consumer or investors for that matter for speaking out personally or politically but here's the reality of the battlefield. noing's changed post-election. as opposed to pre-election. the uncertainty of the tax situation, the fiscal cliff that everyone is tired of hearing about, frankly. the overburdensome regulatory environment that we're in is depressing growth, particularly for small business. and i think that's a primary distinction here as we talk about business itself because all business is not created equal and the president's jobs council who has some wonderful folks, some friends of mind on it, wholly inefficient in my view because there is no representation from small business on that jobs council. melissa: yeah. catherine, let me ask you, when i look what happened in this case of darden because it seems like something that has happened to a bunch of different companies, my takeaway at the end of the day for sure they're not going to hire anyone and th
to this deal because we're not dealing with sequestration, we're not dealing defense cuts, we're not dealing with raising the debt ceiling until next year. i really think that's probably the sticking point at this time. >> maria, are democrats going to do enough for spending cuts, or are they going kind of whittle through that? >> we'll see what the senate is able to come up with. there doesn't seem to be enough time, though, for the kind of spending cuts that we really need to focus on for the long term to be negotiated in the next 72 hours because as you noted those are very difficult positions for democrats. it doesn't mean that democrats don't think that there should be spending cuts. the president is the first one to say that spending cuts are something that he has put on the table and that we need to negotiate and whatever long-term deal gets done. but right now, washington has really pushed us to the brink. and i think what everybody agrees on, i think ron would agree with me, is that no one wants to get blamed for taxes going up on 98% of the american people. and so that i think is w

, the defense department, that are facing these cuts as a result of the fiscal cliff are planning already ahead knowing that there will be negotiations afterwards if no deal is reached, and believing that some type of remedy will occur. they are not really starting to cut as much as they would believing that some deal, even if it doesn't happen before january 3rd will happen after january 3rd. >> reporter: you can be sure that they are actually lobbying and actually trying to get a deal done. as we see members of wall street and ceo's saying get in there and get in the room and get a deal done. you're speaking of negotiations, prior to this standoff the negotiations between president obama and house speaker john boehner tpaeufpltd the so-called plan b alternative failed in the house. so now the senate has the hard task of doing something. so what plan do you expect senators to possibly adopt, and do they have enough time to even get a plan into place? >> it's a good question. there was a quote today in the new york times from a senior democratic aide who said it's hard to under state how little
